Student worksheet for investigating and explaining the trends in Group 1- Alkali Metals.
The worksheet captures the key points on the physical and chemical properties of G 1 elements.
At the end of these lesson students should be able to:
a) Describe the characteristics of G1 -Alkali metals.
b) Describe the trends in melting, boiling points and densities of G1
c) Describe the reactions of G1 with oxygen and water (observations, word and symbol equations)
d) Describe the trend in reactivity of G1
e) Explain the trend in reactivity of G1 in terms of how easily the outer electron is lost
(size of atoms; shielding of the nuclear charge; nuclear attraction for the outer electron are considered).
The worksheet contains different types of activities and assessment questions that will allow students to gain the knowledge and apply it to check / assess their learning and understanding.
